You can also see it thru the passenger side wheel well, look above the oil filter.
To remove the sender you need to remove the oil filter bracket, easy enough but the top left hand bolt is in a tight spot and will need an open end wrench and patients to remove it.
Do this bolt first and leave one of the bottom bolts last because the bracket is under spring tension (oil pump). If your planning on modding the engine now would be a good time to upgrade the oil pressure spring and piston, the oil pressure kit is available from Intense-racing and worth it imo.
My sensor died this spring and when I swapped out the sensor I also installed the oil pressure kit from Intense, if you have any q'* just ask.
